USABLE IN LARGER PIPE SIZES.
Rugged and reliable the Flotect® V4 flow switch operates automatically to
protect equipment and pipeline systems against damage from reduction or loss of
flow. The V4 is time tested being installed in thousands of pipelines and processing
plants around the world. A unique magnetically actuated switching design gives
superior performance. There are no bellows, springs, or seals to fail. Instead, a freeswinging vane attracts a magnet within the solid metal switch body, actuating a snap
switch by means of a simple lever arm.
FEATURES
• Leak proof body machined from bar stock
• Choice of custom vane calibrated for your application, Model V4, or field
adjustable multilayer vane, Model V4-2-U (see set point chart on page 4)
• Weatherproof, designed to meet NEMA 4
• Explosion-proof (listing included in specifications)
• Installs directly and easily into pipeline with a thredolet, tee, or flange (see
application drawings on page 4)
• Can be used in pipes 1-1/2˝ and up
• Electrical assembly can be easily replaced without removing the unit from
installation so that the process does not have to be shut down
• High pressure rating of 1000 psig (69 bar) with the brass body and 2000 psig (138
bar) with the 316 SS body
APPLICATIONS
• Protects pumps, motors and other equipment against low or no flow
• Controls sequential operation of pumps
• Automatically starts auxiliary pumps and engines
• Stops liquid cooled engines, machines and processing when coolant
flow is interrupted
• Shuts down burner when air flow through heating coil fails
• Controls dampers according to flow

Attention: Units without the “AT” suffix are not Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX) compliant. These units are not intended for use in potentially
hazardous atmospheres in the EU. These units may be CE marked for other Directives of the EU.
ADJUSTMENT OF MULTI-LAYER VANE
Remove only those layers which are too long. Leave the smaller layers to
reinforce the vane. The longest vane fits 6˝ (150 mm) or larger pipe, the
second longest vane fits 4˝ (100mm) pipe, etc. Actuation-Deactuation rates
are shown in the charts on the next page. To remove vane layers, proceed as
follows:

INSTALLATION
1. Remove packing material from switch body-cap and remove tape from magnet
keeper. Adjust vane length if necessary on multi-layer vanes only (see flow
rate charts on next page). Install switch in thredolet previously welded to line.
In some cases, it may be necessary to install the switch in a flange or tee (see
installation drawings on next page). Note: extreme care must be exercised in
welding the fitting to the line so that it is plumb and level.
d. With a hammer, lightly peen the ends of the screws so that they can't back
out.
e. If you lose the screws or lockwashers, don't replace with other parts which
may corrode and break. That will void the warrantee and might cause severe
damage to equipment located downstream of the switch.
2.
3.
Note: Custom vane units have been calibrated at factory to meet
requirements. Do not change.
The arrow on the side of the switch must point in the direction of flow.
Wiring: UL and CSA units only: thread connecting wires through conduit and
connect. Wire in accordance with local electrical codes.

5. For units supplied with both internal ground and external bonding terminals, the
ground screw inside the housing must be used to ground the control. The external
bonding screw is for supplementary bonding when allowed or required by local
code. When external bonding conductor is required, conductor must be wrapped a
minimum of 180° about the external bonding screw. See below.

ATEX and IECEx Installation Instructions:
Cable Connection
The cable entry device shall be certified in type of explosion protection
flameproof enclosure “d”, suitable for conditions of use and correctly installed.
Cable entry may exceed 70°C. Conductors and cable gland rated ≥95°C shall
be used.
4.
Note: The switch is deactivated and contacts are in normal condition when
there is no flow in the line.
Make sure conduit or cable are properly sealed. Electrical components must
be kept free of moisture, including condensation, at all times. CAUTION: To
prevent ignition of hazardous atmosphere, disconnect the device from the
supply circuit before opening. Keep assembly tightly closed when in operation.
Note: ATEX and IECEX units only: The temperature class is determined by
the maximum ambient and or process temperature. Units are intended to be
used in ambient of -20°C≤Tamb≤73°C. Units may be used in process
temperatures up to 133°C providing the enclosure and switch body
temperature do not exceed 73°C. The standard Temperature Class is T6
Process Temp ≤73°C.
CONDUCTOR
SCREW
Note: Double pole, double throw switches have dual black, blue and red
leads. These are connected in the same manner as single pole, double throw
switches, as described above.
Conduit Connection
An Ex d certified sealing device such as a conduit seal with setting compound
shall be provided immediately to the entrance of the valve housing. Cable
entry may exceed 70°C. Conductors and cable gland rated ≥95°C shall be
used.
